Extension of East Light Rail Transit underway in Philippines
The Department of Transportation (DOTr) and the Light Rail Transit Authority (LRTA) have started construction of the Light Rail Transit (LRT)-2 East extension project.

The existing LRT-2 System from Santolan, Pasig City to Masinag in Antipolo, Rizal is to be extended by four kilometers.

LRTA administrator Reynaldo Berroya explained: “The completion of the LRT Line 2 East Extension Project is part of the fulfillment of the government’s promise to ease traffic congestion by extending the service of the LRT Line 2 System to the eastern part of Metro Manila.”

As part of the project, two new stations are to be built: the Emerald station and the Masinag station.
80,000 passengers are foreseen to use daily the new stations.
Completion of the stations is scheduled for August 2018.

DOTr secretary Arthur Tugade said: “It will be a timely addition to have both new stations in the LRT Line 2 as we acknowledge the need for greater accessibility of passengers coming from the eastern side of Metro Manila extending to key areas of Antipolo and its nearby cities.”
